We have a long way to go: Don Jazzy on NDDC probe.

Ace music producer, Don Jazzy has shared his view about the ongoing probe of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).  In an Instagram post he shared, the music executive stated that the great opportunity for the Niger Delta region to become a model for the entire nation was wasted by a few selfish people.  Don Jazzy who wondered if Ken Saro-Wiwa who lost his life for the region's cause would be proud of how things turned around, added that the NDDC with this huge financial recklessness over the years, is just one of many government agencies. He wrote;  THOUGHTS ON NDDC : I read through this to know the Senate's resolution on the back of the #NDDCprobe in the National assembly and so many things come to mind. NDDC's birth in 2000 during former president Obasanjo's regime was supposed to right the wrongs made under OMPADEC in the 90s but here we are, still digging the hole we found ourselves after two decades. Corruption has now become so endemic in our nation that
